There's another major chicken recall. Perdue Foods is recalling almost 16 tons of ready-to-eat "Simply Smart" organic chicken.

The chicken was sold nationwide by retailers. It's being recalled because the chicken may contain pieces of bone, reported CBS.

The products were produced on March 21. They were recalled after consumer complaints to Perdue and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall covers approximately 31,703 pounds of refrigerated, fully cooked chicken. There are three types of chicken under the recall.

The recall covers gluten-free breaded organic chicken tenders, whole grain breaded organic chicken breast strips, and whole grain breaded organic chicken breast nuggets.

It also includes frozen, fully cooked breaded chicken tenders and fully cooked whole grain chicken strips. They were sold under the "Chef Quik" brand for foodservice.

"We are committed to producing the highest quality products, therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all affected products that were produced during the same production run," Jeff Shaw, Perdue's vice president of food safety and quality, said in the statement.

The FSIS said it was concerned the recalled product might be in freezers. They urged consumers to throw out or return it to the place of purchase. Consumers can all call Perdue Foods at 866-866-3703 for a refund.

The following products are being recalled:

This is their second recall of the year. In January, Perdue recalled nearly 3 tons of chicken nuggets over worries the products might be tainted with pieces of wood.

Please check your fridge! This could be very dangerous.
